Portrait Chocolate Course

Welcome!

 

I hope that you will fall in love with portrait chocolates just like I did. They are magical, delicious and unique! You will be one of the very few people on Earth who will be offering these to your customers or using in your own special art. That alone is pretty amazing in my opinion. There are methods to reverse the files to create bas reliefs in dark chocolate too. 

If you'd like copies of the videos to download, let me know and I can send you a link to download them. You can save the pdf files to your computer. If you have any trouble let me know. I will be available each day to answer emails so if you have any questions I will do my best to answer them promptly.

If you haven't followed me on Facebook yet, please do, Artisanne_Chocolatier. Once you do I can invite you to the Facebook group for this Portrait Chocolate Class.

 

EACH SECTION STARTS WITH A VIDEO AND PDF. JUST GO IN ORDER AND IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME OR POST IN THE FB GROUP.

After viewing the pdf file and videos there is homework *optional of course. The homework is for you to send me a before and after photo you've chosen to use as a portrait chocolate (ie, lithophane). Send to anneboulley@gmail.com so I can review it for you.
